Pro Gun Advocates Claim “Good Year” In Oklahoma Legislature

KSCB News - May 14, 2012 8:39 am

Advocates for expanded gun rights in

Oklahoma are claiming success in the 2012 legislative session after

the passage of several pro-gun measures that include one allowing

permit holders to openly carry firearms.

The open-carry bill was given final approval by the Legislature

last week and is awaiting the governor’s signature. It has been a

top priority for gun rights advocates in recent years. Republican

Governor Mary Fallin already has signed a bill allowing gun owners

from other states to carry concealed weapons in Oklahoma, and

another bill on her desk would prohibit the governor or any other

state or local official from confiscating or banning firearms

during a state of emergency.

Gun-rights advocate Don Spencer with the Oklahoma Second

Amendment Association says he’s "very pleased" with the 2012

session.
